L’isola di Capri (Italy) & Tiberius’ Villa Jovis

What remains of the palace of Tiberius on Capri

From the small island of Capri, off the coast of Naples, the violent and sadistic Tiberius ruled his Italy for 11 years, from 26 AD until his death in 37 AD.  And on our visit to Capri in May 2015, we decided to climb up to the remains of one of his twelve former palaces on the isle, all the while as D told me many gruesome stories about the people he murdered, the poor souls he threw off the cliffs of Capri when he had had enough of them, and the ways he would punish people, including his family.

When visited: May 2015
